When the stories about the gross shit that Harvey Weinstein allegedly pulled were made public, there was one that could’ve ended with Brad Pitt going to trial for murdering the throbbing hemorrhoid clinging to Hollywood’s ass tunnel. Gwyneth Paltrow told the tale of how when she was 22 (this was pre-Emma), Harvey pulled a creepy move on her and tried to get her to go into his hotel suite’s bedroom for massage time. Gwyneth refused and ran out of there quicker than she runs out of a restaurant that doesn’t have three Michelin stars. She told her then boyfriend, Brad Pitt, who got so mad that he got in Harvey’s face and didn’t care about getting the blood of a creep on his sparkling Sally Hershberger-created highlights. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked a current day Brad about this, and he said he was just doing what good ole’ boys from the Ozarks do.
Gwyneth, who reportedly played a pivotal role in bringing down The Kingdom of Pervey Wankstein (which sounds like the name of the worst children’s book ever), told Howard Stern last year that Brad confronted Harvey at a film premiere and threatened to kill Harvey if the calcified nutsack wart ever made her feel uncomfortable again. Gwyneth continued to work with Harvey, but apparently he never tried it with her again. While pushing Ad Astra during an interview with CNN, Christiane Amanpour asked Brad why he decided to go up against one of the most powerful overlords of Hollywood at the time.
“At that moment, I was just a boy from the Ozarks on the playground.. and that’s.. and that’s how we confronted with things.”“I just wanted to make sure nothing was going to happen further, because she (Paltrow) was going to do two films. I think the interesting thing is that we, Hollywood specifically, but the workplace, men and women’s dynamics is being recalibrated, recalibrated in a very good way that is long overdue. And I do think that’s an important story to tell.”
“Even if he wins, Gayle,” Rotunno said. “His whole life has been ruined, toppled, damaged. And whether it’s by his own doing or others’, that’s the fact. And the fact is that no matter what we do, and we can walk out of that courtroom with a not guilty and walk him out onto those courtroom steps, and he never gets to be Harvey Weinstein ever again.”
